What to Expect

Scaled down version of the CBR600 engine in naked, tubular chassis, available new in Japan and as a grey import in the UK. Light weight and compactness are astonishing for an across the frame four but high revving nature (power peaks at 14k) make high mileages (over 30,000 miles) somewhat dubious, making the CB400 Super Four a safer buy.
